Planting Intergenerational Promises helps students to develop long lasting relationships with seniors in the community through:

  • Planting (tulip and daffodil bulbs)
  • Performing (poetry, theatre, and music inspired by flowers)¬†
  • Participating (collaborative flower-theme art projects and conversation)
  • Presenting gifts (blooms or bloom inspired mementos)
